If you haven’t heard of H&M‘s Global Garment Collecting initiative, it’s about time that you play your part in avoid more of your clothes contributing to overflowing landfills.
For 7 years, H&M customers have been encouraged to bring their unwanted and worn out garments and textiles, from any brand and in any condition, to any H&M store. With this global garment collecting initiative, H&M has successfully collected over 49,000 tonnes of clothing and has raised the awareness on the importance of renewable fashion and reduce garments that end up in landfills.
Following the success of last year’s first garment collecting collaboration, H&M Malaysia recently announced its second collaboration with ride-hailing platform Grab! And this time, even folks in Johor Bahru and Penang Island get to participate!
From 18th to 20th August, Grab users from any location within the Klang Valley, Johor Bahru and Penang Island will get to book a ride to pick up their unwanted garments from their door steps between 11am to 3pm daily! All textiles are welcome – and we mean ALL. Nothing is too torn, worn or used for a second life.
Bookings can easily be made by tapping on the special H&M icon on the Grab application. Upon collection, users will be rewarded with two H&M vouchers worth 15% off one item for every bag of unwanted garments that they hand over to their Grab driver. Each customer is entitled to a maximum of 10 vouchers per day (that’s 5 bags of unwanted clothes!).
